Matador!

Here at The Lego Car Blog we are not fans of matadors. Whilst they are undoubtedly brave, and whilst we do enjoy a steak, killing a bull (or any animal) gradually for fun is in our eyes a pretty douchebaggy pastime. We know that it may be a few readers’ heritage, but it’s a douchebaggy heritage. Like fox hunting. Or burning a cross on your lawn.

However, we do rather like this matador. A lot. It comes from Spanish tuners Radical, using the Ducati 1198 superbike a base. This spectacular Model Team recreation of Radical’s bonkers bike is the work of TLCB veteran Gerald Cacas, who has merged Technic and System construction to beautiful effect.

There’s much more to see of Gerald’s Radical Ducati Matador at his Flickr’ album. Click the link above to wave the red sheet and dodge the horns.*

*Don’t though. Because bull fighting sucks.

Scrambled Eggs

Lego Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer

We have no idea why ‘Cafe Racer’ motorcycles are named as they are. The results do look very cool though, as this gorgeous Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer (hence our witty title!) by Flickr’s Thomas Poulsom (aka DeTomaso77) proves.

Built for a friend Thomas’ Ducati looks the perfect way to race to the cafe (if that’s what these bikes are for?). Click here to head to Flickr and order your eggs.

Ducati 1199 Panigale

Lego Ducati 1199 Motorcycle

This brilliant Ducati 1199 Panigale was suggested by several readers, and it gave us a bit of a categorisation dilemma here in TLCB Office. There are Technic, System and even Town parts contained within it (see if you can find the crossbow!), and the beauty of LEGO is that they all mesh together wonderfully to create an authentic looking replica motorcycle.

In the end we settled on ‘Model Team’, Gerald Cacas is the builder behind it, and you can see more of his Ducati – and the parts inventiveness used to create it – on Flickr at the link above.
